Dispelling the Myth: A Case Study on How A Catholic School Serves Students with Down Syndrome
Lauren Casella, Ed.D.
1.) How does a Catholic elementary school serve students with Down syndrome? and 2). What are the challenges in serving students with Down syndrome in a Catholic elementary school? The significance of this case study lies in witnessing and documenting one elementary Catholic school’s experience of creating, developing, establishing, and modelling an inclusion environment that serves the needs of its students with Down syndrome. This study will ultimately provide data to those in similar Catholic school settings in developing and implementing fully inclusive environments. This study hopes to further the discussion in the field of Catholic education about the right(s) of all Catholic children, especially students with Down syndrome.
